Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Enjoy the flavors of fall with this gluten free vegan apple crumb coffee cake.

As soon as there is even a hint of fall in the air my tastebuds immediately cry out for apple everything!  Sweet, tart, baked, fried, fresh, etc… I like it in all it’s various forms. This Apple Crumb Coffee Cake gives me my apple fix in a lightly sweetened and very moist cake. It is equally tasty at breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or as dessert with it’s tender apple spice flavored apple pieces.

Enjoy the flavors of fall with this gluten free vegan apple crumb coffee cake.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups quick cooking oats
  2. ¼ cup real maple syrup
  3. ½ -¾ cup dried cranberries
  4. ¼ cup coconut oil
  5. 2 flax eggs (2T ground flax with 6T warm water, let sit)
  6. 1 tsp.pumpkin pie spice
  7. 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  8. ¼ tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
  2. Line baking sheet with foil, parchment paper, or a silpat mat. If you do not already own a silpat mat and you enjoy baking I recommend grabbing one. They help your food to cook evenly, make cleanup easier, and cuts out the waste of throwing foil away repeatedly.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed, mixture will be a sticky still. These breakfast cookies are meant to be just lightly sweetened but you can add a bit more maple syrup to increase the sweetness.
  4. Scoop heaping tablespoons of mixture onto prepared pans, flatten gently with your palm.
  5. Bake for 16-18 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool completely.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  8. Heat for 10-15 seconds in the microwave or toaster over to warm.
Great tip
  1. Get creative and customize these breakfast cookies with your favorite add ins like pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or even chocolate chips. Stir in a ¼ cup of whichever one you like, if mixture is too dry to hold together add a bit more coconut oil.

Five Friday Finds #160

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Are you all ready for the fun and festivities tonight? I want to encourage you and your children to not over indulge on the candy and sweet treats tonight. Sugar lowers our immune systems leaving our bodies prone to colds and infections during an already difficult time of the year for the cold and flu virus. Moderation is key!

If you find yourself or your children feeling ill over the next few days or anytime this winter please remember all of the immunity boosting and cold fighting healthy living tips I’ve shared this month in my 31 Days of Healthy Living Tips series. Elderberry, Ginger, Echinacea, Water, and of course sleep all help fight off viruses and boost your overall immunity.

11 ways to remove sugar from your diet. Go sugar free!  Includes a 21-day sugar free challenge. It is a lifestyle not a diet. Health Matters. Life Matters. AlexisMathews.com

As we enter the time of year when candy, sweet treats and desserts bombard our senses please remember my 21 day sugar free challenge. Sugar is highly addictive, hence why you crave it so strongly. You don’t truly have a sweet tooth and a sugar craving is not normal. Sugar can even affect your mood. I’d love to see all of you start the new year healthier than you are right now.

Healthy living tip fluoride. Find out why you need to avoid fluoride. Including toxic overdose, bone health, and hypothyroidism.

My most popular post from last week is a topic near and dear to my heart. As you will read in this post, avoiding fluoride is critical for your health, especially your thyroid health. Did you know that fluoride was used as an anti-thyroid drug and treats over active thyroids? Even a small amount can have a huge effect on this very important hormone regulating gland.

I hope you are joining me for my 31 Days of Healthy Living Tips series.

If you’d like to learn more about a vegan lifestyle and plant based diets I would like to encourage you to read both Whole and The China Study, both written by T. Colin Campbell a leader in the plant based diet scientific community.
